Peter Reginato, LOL, 2011. Stainless steel and enamel, 45 x 42 x 37 in.

“I have been working with welded steel as an artistic medium since 1969,” explains Reginato. “Drawing has always been an important aspect of my work. It is important for me to make my own shapes by hand, rather than rely on found objects or neutralizing the forms, color, or compositions. I feel that pushing the issue of drawing, gives my work a depth not found in the formalist and minimalist art world or work that relies on mechanical tracing.” The exhibition will continue through November 22.
